NEWS! We just launched ClimateCart 💚

ClimateHero was founded in 2018 with the mission to help individuals calculate and reduce their climate impact. So far, over 500,000 people have used ClimateHero's climate calculator and selected climate pledges that reduce global emissions by over 1 million tons of CO2e per year.​



Many climate pledges are about thinking more circular when we shop, which we have also formulated several climate-smart tips about.​

However, many purchases will continue to consist of newly produced goods, and the purchasing channel that is growing the most is e-commerce. ClimateHero therefore wants to help make e-commerce more climate-smart and friendly. As a first step, in collaboration with the e-commerce platform Shopify, we have developed an app that reminds the customer of the climate impact of the purchase in the shopping basket and gives the opportunity to compensate for it.

So far, it is a simplified service that uses a standard calculation to estimate the climate impact of the money flow.
In the long run, we want to be part of developing the industry towards greater transparency of various aspects of sustainability at product level. But to get there we need to get more partners. We are therefore wondering if YOU possibly know someone who runs an e-commerce on Shopify's platform!? Then let us know!
We would also like to take the opportunity to present 4 partners who acted as pilot customers for us during the development of the app. Click on their page and you can see how ClimateCart is included as an insert in the shopping cart.
  1. JOY wants to help you as a consumer to buy fewer but more garments that are right for you, so that the garments that are bought are used more often and for a longer period of time. This becomes possible when you build a more thoughtful wardrobe and choose clothes that have a design that feels relevant over several seasons. The idea is to reduce wrong purchases and thereby save both money and the environment.
  2. Tusenö is a Swedish watch brand that manufactures automatic watches with the epithet Swiss Made. The focus is on sustainability in both design and material selection. We do not believe in temporary trends, but our design philosophy is to manufacture classic models that suit you regardless of when or where you wear your watch. With over 1100+ reviews from customers all over the world, and an average rating of 4.7 out of 5, we are on the right track towards the goal – to become Sweden's best watch brand.
  3. Flora Mea is a shop selling seeds and mushroom growing kits online since 2008. Growing both plants and mushrooms at home is more popular than ever and is a pleasant way to reflect on nature and climate in everyday life. Flora Mea has one of the widest selections of seeds in Sweden.
  4. Piperebel primarily sells pipes and pipe benders so that you can build your own interior in industrial steam-punk second, we call it "Unique as a standard". Our products are also perfect for those who want to reuse everything from old wood or metal pieces to rebuilding furniture or building new from scratch. We have some completely finished products, DIY packages and loose parts for those who want to build something completely their own and unique.
